Jamye, Haby, Xonatia

After 3 rounds, we are leading in the 2 sections we are playing in: 12 and under, and 14 and under. results here. I sit in my hotel room and analyze chess all day. Some of the girls are really playing quite well, and most of them are working hard at the board, so I am happy. I had two tempting offers to experience the nightlife of the windy city, but I'm so exhausted, I can't. I know that next weekend (62) will be much much worse than this one (11), and that fills me with fear.

look: a running race

Lots of good places to eat in Chicago, hope you get a few good meals. Best wishes to all the young women.

Dang it! You were in Chicago and you didn't say anything? I owe you coffee!

Then again, it was my girlfriend's birthday weekend, so perhaps it's just as well.
